If you’re looking for a picture-perfect holiday destination, look no further than the Turks and Caicos. There’s so much more here than sand, sea, and surf (although that’s fabulous too). The Big Blue Collective firmly believes the heart of the Turks and Caicos experience isn’t just about beach days and watersports, however, If you’re looking for the epitome of luxury living, it’s time to experience a sunset at sea and glimpse the soul of the islands. And here’s why!

The ocean awaits

Humans and the ocean have a long history together. We’ve hunted, swam, tried to tame, and simply enjoyed the lapping of the ocean on the world’s best beaches for literal millennia. A key part of luxury living in the Turks and Caicos is a beachfront view you can enjoy at any time of the day or night! There’s a reason, after all, so many luxury living experiences are found along beautiful coastlines globally. 

The sea is powerful, beautiful, mysterious, and occasionally dangerous. After all, many ships over the centuries have sunk at the hands of the Turks and Caicos barrier reef! Despite this fearsome reputation for ships, however, the Turks and Caicos are known globally for some of the kindest, warmest, and flattest waters for water sports junkies and new learners alike.  We even use the strong tidal currents to generate some forms of green energy, and contrary currents can be a danger to even the most experienced swimmers and divers. The sea can be flat and clear, or roiling in anger, and its mood can change in minutes. 

There’s little wonder it’s been such a centerpiece of the human experience. We tell stories about it. We spend our holiday watching it. We’re soothed by the negative ions it produces, and we relax in the buoyant, healing saltwater that supports our bodies.

Likewise, the sun has always been of key importance to humans. It’s what allows life to thrive on planet Earth, after all! Without the sun, we’d have nothing. Life wouldn’t even exist. 

So there’s little wonder that so many bucket-list experiences involve the sea, the sand, and the surf. But the Turks and Caicos offer the very best of them all.

The beauty of a sunset at sea

There’s something about the sun on the ocean it’s hard to describe. The exquisite fade of yellow into orange and beyond, the spectacular riot of mesmerizing colour as it kisses the surface of the sea and shatters into a million brilliant colours. The gleam of fire colours on ocean waves that pull you in, making you feel like part of the experience. The satisfaction of seeing those same colours reflected in the silky red wine or bright cocktail you’re sipping. And then suddenly the sun slips into the sea and the stars appear over a calm, still night as if by magic.

It’s a near meditative experience, allowing you to unwind from your stresses and reminisce on everything the day held. Stress melts away into the endless horizon. It’s just you, the sea, and the sky. Lapping soft waves, the soothing motion of the deck, and the ocean breeze on your skin. You’ll feel revived, refreshed, and ready to enjoy another fun day on the islands after a fantastic night’s sleep in the reviving sea air.

While the sunset is always there to enjoy, in cities and built-up urban areas packed with artificial lights, it’s an experience we don’t stop and enjoy. The sunset at sea is different, and the soothing calmness while bobbing along in a picture-perfect holiday destination has to be experienced to be believed. 

Experience the best sunset in the Turks and Caicos

With the Big Blue Collective’s private yacht charters, a sunset at sea has never been easier to enjoy. Our experienced skipper will have the helm, so all you need to do is kick back and experience true luxury living at its very best. Go where you want, see what you will…. The ocean is beckoning you to come and play. 

What better way to spend the day than touring the pristine natural beauty of the back islands on an eco-tour? Picnic on a near-deserted beach, dive and snorkel the remarkably clear seas, or windsurf the bays. Scull slowly down the mangrove channels on a stand-up paddleboard or kayak, and meet the marine life in its own environment. Poke around the untouched vegetation, and uncover the remnants of cotton and sisal plantations. Then sip cocktails on deck while a perfect sunset at sea sinks below the horizon. Head back to your luxury private villa for a well-earned rest, or head out to a restaurant or to enjoy Provo’s nightlife. Chat with the locals and learn more about their life. Just make sure to get a great night’s sleep so you’re ready for more fun in the sun tomorrow!

The Turks and Caicos is a picture-perfect holiday destination like nothing else. From days spent basking on the soft white sand to the fun and adrenaline of her watersports, you’ll come back year after year to enjoy everything you missed the first time around. The islands will soon feel like home, but you’ll never be bored and there’s always something new to uncover. Don’t you think it’s time to embrace the best of luxury living?
